    Admiral Andrew H. Foote Signed Carte de Visite. A knees-up standing pose portrait in uniform holding sword, signed "A H Foote" beneath, a J. F. Ryder backmark (Cleveland) on verso. Foote was one of the first naval officers promoted to the new rank of rear admiral. He commanded the Mississippi River Squadron from 1861-1862, cooperating with Ulysses S. Grant against Forts Henry and Donelson on the Tennessee River. He was wounded at the latter battle (in the foot) and received the Thanks of Congress for his service. He suddenly died in 1863 while on his way to command the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron. Photo is excellent.
